The best breakfast for runners? In my opinion it’s definitely porridge! With the high fibre content, the slow releasing carbohydrates and the full feeling it gives you, makes it a real winner before any day of training!!
Here are 5 ways to jazz up your porridge for the training day ahead:
1.Carrot cake porridge: add grated carrot and cook on the hob for 3 mins. Top with walnuts,pecans,cinnamon,nutmeg and Greek yoghurt to finish.
2.Zoats: a great way to sneak more green veg into your day, add grated courgette(zucchini) to your porridge (I promise you can’t taste it). Cook on the hob for 3 mins. Finish with a drizzle of honey.
3.Anti-oxidant booster:blueberries,rasberries,strawberries and pomegranate. Helps get rid of any nasty colds and flus.
4.Choco-loco: add 1 tsp of organic cocoa powder and a vanilla pod to your porridge. Perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!
5.The American way:Add a tablespoon of peanut and jelly (organic jam) to your porridge after it is cooked. It’s a classic combo.
